COVID-19: Scotland Extended Financial Support

by | Jan 13, 2021

A significant top-up to the grant support available for hospitality, retail and leisure businesses (including close contact businesses) across Scotland closed by level 4 restrictions will be paid following an announcement by Finance Secretary Kate Forbes.

On 11 January 2021, the additional support for non-essential retail and leisure businesses (including close contact businesses) which are required to close in level 4 was increased. Eligible businesses will be given up to an additional £9,000 (previously £3,000) as a one-off payment, and can claim this funding through their local authority website if they’ve not already submitted an application for the Strategic Framework Business Fund. Non-essential retail and gyms already in receipt of payments are also eligible but do not need to reapply.

 

Eligible retail and leisure businesses will receive:

  • a one-off grant of £9,000 for all relevant businesses with a rateable value of £51,001 or more
  • a one-off grant of £6,000 for relevant businesses with a rateable value of up to and including £51,000

 

In most cases, payment will be combined with the next tranche of payments for the Strategic Framework Business Fund due to go to businesses on 25 January.
